It seems so fast, but the girls start school this week, so we squeezed in a quick weekend getaway at a new destination called Pine Mountain Lake.
Cool place! We arrived at night and immediately dipped our toes in the lake – nice and warm, even though the sun had gone to bed a few hours before. The little house we rented was fun too. Right on the golf course and surrounded by roaming herds of deer.
TubaDad got up at the crack of dawn to play a short round—crazy boy—and the girls of the house slept in. Then we all played at the lake. (By “played” I technically mean the girls swam and built sand castles and TubaDad and I parked our chairs in the water and enjoyed nice, refreshing beverages. Ahhhh.)
After lunch we headed about an hour away to Yosemite and hiked until we could hike no more.
Ro and Ree did not want to leave Yosemite. We finally dragged them away with promises that we’d return soon and let them hang out in the river for as long as they wanted. Yosemite deserves more than a half a day, that’s for sure, but it’s all the time we had.
Back at home now, after a bit of lake play and a bit more driving. Worn out but happy. So is everyone else saying goodbye to summer, or do you have an adventure or two left?
